The first thing to check is the brake lines, this lines rot and leak fluid, most times its the line going to rear wheels that runs along side of fuel tank along the frame,

    remove the master cylinder, use a screw driver and push in on the rear of master as the rod would,does it spring back out, if it does then thats okay,then i would also make sure the brake pedal linkage is hooked up correctly,if thats okay then i would say there a problem with the booster,but even with a bad booster the pedal shouldnt go to floor unless there a bad line or lots of air in the system,and last is the porportioning valve may be stuck,but again the spring load in the master should push the brake pedal back up,maybe a bad master, i would start from the begining and double check everything starting with the master cylinder and the pedal linkage.

How do i install a power booster for a 1992 GMC Sierra, 2 wheel drive?


First remove the 2 nuts that hold the master cylinder to the booster. Then remove the vac hose. Then remove the clip at the brake pedal to the rod. Then remove the 4 nuts that hold the booster near the brake pedal. Then remove the booster and install in reverse order. Let me know how it goes.
